I've got a friend that is interested in selling a few Pecan trees and we're
not sure the best way to go about it to get a reasonable return. He had
one fall that was so big (52" diameter) that no one could saw it up and he
ended up selling it for firewood.
So anyway, he's got 3-4 that are about 2-1/2 - 3' diamter trunks, 40-50' or
more tall. How is this typically done? Do you sell the tree in the ground
as is or let them mill it and sell by yield or what? Is there a way to
estimate how many board foot you'd get out of a tree like that?
